casual staples

On a typical summer day you can usually find me in stripes, distressed denim, casual sandals and a canvas tote. Lately, I’ve been trying to invest in more classic pieces that I know I won’t get sick of next season. Here are a few of my favorites; some I have and some are on my wish list!

Our trip to Paris and the south of France is only a month away, which has me thinking about what to pack! Whenever I travel I always try to pick versatile, neutral colors so I can mix and match outfits easily. These are some essentials that I am definitely going to make sure are in my suitcase.

I thought this punchy red dress would be perfect for a holiday cocktail party. I decided to pair it with some fun black and gold accessories and a punch of evergreen nail polish. Depending on the weather you could easily throw in some cute black tights and a fun blazer as well. These festive gold coasters make the perfect hostess gift to go along with your outfit!
